Summit between ministers Guerini, Franco And Giorgetti to find the square for the Italian positioning in the strategic chessboard of European defense
Between politics and industry a close confrontation on the destinies of European defense where the pole of defense systems is Leonardo remains central. Oto Melara And Wass appear the first real test that sees compete Leonardo (with Rothschild like advisor), the Franco-German giant Knds and the leading group of Italian shipbuilding Fincantieri. One has been in existence for a few weeks due diligence, based on two offers not binding: 700 million from the Franco-German group, 450 from Trieste.
This afternoon, he writes The messenger, the summit between the Minister of Defense is scheduled Lorenzo Guerini, of the Treasury Daniele Franco and of the Mise Giancarlo Giorgetti to find the square for the Italian positioning in the strategic chessboard of European defense. Through Oto Melara in the first phase e Wass in the second, the government aims to create from a consortium or di partnership new models of aggregation with France and Germany that should certainly be useful for the creation and production of the so-called European tank, but also for future hunting, for which two separate programs are currently being studied, the Franco-German and the Anglo-Italian. Interesting developments could also come in the naval sector where Fincantieri could be reinforced with the acquisition of the torpedoes and underwater systems developed by Leonardo.
The whole would fit into the larger Treaty of the Quirinale signed on Friday and signed tomorrow between Draghi and Macron. On the reserve theme two focal points: the second (Defense) and the sixth (Space). In the meantime, the leaders of the Franco-German consortium Knds visited the La Spezia plants last week. According to sources close to the dossier cited by the newspaper, even the trade unions would have been reassured in the light of the broader plan that is transforming from an industrial into a strategic / political one and which could guarantee greater certainty in the long term thanks to the inclusion of the two historic plants. Leonardo in the wider 27-star EU defense risk.
Or at least three stars, those of Italy, Germany and France, the most important. On the table of confrontation in the government there is a concrete desire to involve Iveco Defense Vehicles, concomitant with the listing. A partnership between these parties is the only option on the table that can take shape. Then in the background there is an operation that sees Fincantieri with its main shareholder Cdp making a capital increase of approximately 1 billion.
The government is aiming for the involvement of Knds, Fincantieri and the Iveco group because this alliance would strengthen the leadership of the Italian giant led by Alessandro Profumo in electronics as it would become a supplier to the big pole. For the European tank Knds would participate in the tender together with Iveco. We also talked about the entrance of Rheinmetall, also German, but it would not be feasible because, dealing with electronics, it would be a less synergistic partner of the pole than Knds.
